Neil Harris hopes Millwall can grab another chance to exploit The Den's "hostile atmosphere" with a home draw in the FA Cup fifth round.

Championship strugglers Millwall knocked out Everton in Saturday's 3-2 fourth-round win, with Harris now eagerly awaiting tonight's draw.

Marco Silva's near full-strength side appeared overawed by a raucous crowd and relentless driving rain.

"I'd like to play at home, I like playing at The Den," said Harris. "It always gives us an opportunity to win.

"I think we like to create a hostile atmosphere.

"I really like my players to play in those big games in front of our fans. When this place gets going and you're playing the big games there's no better atmosphere in English football. I'm not making that up.

"We like to play attack-minded, aggressive football. We'll scrap for every ball, we'll run with teams, compete for everything.

"The elements on Saturday, the atmosphere, the rain, the wind, it's always going to make it difficult for the opponent."
